had an election. they chose mr. obama. he's going to get what he wants in the short term. long term, there are many things you can do to push the ball forward in the way that you think is most helpful. can i go back to guns for just a second? one of the things that i think was frustrating for those not on mr. obama's side in general over the whole guns thing is that in his remarks he looked at everybody and he challenged those congressmen from mixed districts who have a lot of gun rights supporters. he challenged them and said try to be brave do the right thing. that's a great thing to say. but he himself the president could have been brave and done the right thing by including in his big view of guns hollywood our culture our media all of the people who make entertainment that very arguably are hurting kids in america but who are the president's supporters. so he didn't want to do the right thing there and it's frustrating. when you're president you ought to be thinking big and even when you've just been re-elected and you're going to be inaugurated, go for it. be brave. have a sis

? if the past is any guide, mrs. obama, with those famous arms, tends to favor strapless and one shoulder gowns fitted at the waist and color. sources say strapless is at least one option she's considering. designers are mindful this piece of clothing is not just an outfit but a piece of history too. >> you have to describe in this garment what she's feeling, the importance of the moment, i felt like betsy ross. >> reporter: this dediner gained fame after she dressed the first lady at the inauguration swearing in morning. >> i wanted to dot inauguration. >> why? >> because that's the moment that the whole world is a part of. and the whole world was watching. >> reporter: why this time. >> some people wanted to know are you going to be a part of it this time? there's nothing more important than seeing someone else have this gift in what they do with it. >> reporter: and just so we're clear, for the inauguration the first lady will not be wearing clothes off the rack. we can pretty safely say these are made to measure, one-of-a-kind, custom garments commissioned by the white house. but imagine th
, this is unjust" they are worse now. mr. obama, the first african- american president, it does not echo the sentiments or the revolution of values articulated by martin luther king in 1968. the empire is worse than when martin luther king warned about the vietnam and spreading war in east asia. there are more drones, more killings of innocent people, more violations of national sovereignties by the obama military. of course the military budget swallows half of the discretionary budget, over $800 billion not counting other sub budgets and a permanent energy. domestically, we have a much higher unemployment rate in 1968. we have more poverty absolutely and relatively and 1968. we certainly have more home foreclosures and more consumer debt. of course, 30 million workers are making today less than the workers made in 1968 adjusted for inflation. that is why we're launching this national drive to overpower congress and split the republicans in congress, organized and what the democrats, so tens of billions of dollars are poured into the community, into the long deserved pockets of these peo

the story of this proposal to write an editorial on it saying this presents mr. obama with a choice. he can continue driving a hard bargain on political policy terms that would entail using the entitlements until the republicans capitulate with the regard to the sequester or and partial government shutdown or the president could act on his past promises to tacking entitlements and engage in good faith with republicans now so they have no further reason to exploit the quest station. another writes if the house approves the stedges the next budget deadline would occur march 1 when the $1.2 trillion in automatic spending -- host: this comes as the larger proposal of what we have been talking about, headlines you may have seen already, headlines much like those in the baltimore sun that morning says house g.o.p. leaders and you heard our guest jonathan strong talk about the change in strategy to gain support. that's what we're talking about the remainder of our time. hunter, from fort lauderdale, florida. our republican line. go right ahead. caller: good morning. i think what people are missing
